Juventus News and Form – Will Juve beat Leverkusen in Turin?

Juve will be kicking themselves after their matchday one result against Atletico Madrid. Juventus were 2-0 up in the second half of that fixture but conceded goals late on only to get out of the fixture with a point. That would have been a massive three points if they could have nailed them. So that leaves Juventus at only one victory in their last six Champions League fixtures (W2 L3). So they haven’t been in great form in continental action. Last season they topped their group, but then lost in the quarter-finals against Ajax.

Of their five home fixtures, last season in the UEFA Champions League, Juventus won three of them. The two losses in that sequence were against Man Utd in the group stage and then Ajax in the quarter-finals. Before their 2018 quarter-final defeat against Real Madrid, Juventus had gone 27 European matches undefeated in a wonderful run. Since they moved into the Juventus Stadium they have taken a W22 D12 L4 record in their Champions League games there. However, three of those four defeats in that sequence have happened in their last six there. The Italian giants are only D3 L1 in their last four games against German teams. They have gone W1 D2 L2 in their last five at home against Bundesliga opposition.

Bayer Leverkusen News and Form – Can Leverkusen upset Juve?

So this is a tough game for Bayer Leverkusen in their trip to Turin. They are looking for points after not getting anything on the board in matchday one against Lokomotiv Moscow. So that result makes this game even worse for the German team. Leverkusen have taken only two wins in their last 14 Champions League games (D8 L10). It was a fourth-place finish in last season’s Bundesliga that got them back to the Champions League.

Their record in the Champions League is not all that bad really. They have qualified for the round of sixteen in all but one of their last eight campaigns. The Werkself have only taken the two losses in their last 11 away games in European action (W4 D5). They were in the Europa League last season and netted ten goals from their three away games in the group stage. They have gone undefeated in their last five away games in the UEFA Champions League. From their last five trips to Italy they are winless (D1 L4).

Juventus v Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

Juventus to win: This is a tough game for Leverkusen and we don’t see them having enough to get anything out of this fixture. Juventus have the quality to pick them off, but perhaps only by the one-goal margin as they haven’t particularly impressed yet.
